ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2004
Nice unfiltered pilsner with a hazy golden colour and a creamy white head. Aroma is malty and lightly hoppy. Flavor is mainly bitter, but with some sweet notes. Dry bitter finish.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2004
Hazy amber coloured brew with a rich malt nose tempered with a hint of lemon. Fairly bitter, malty taste with the lemony hops providing some interest. The finish is malty and slightly bitter. Overpriced for what it is. (Draught in Novomestsky Pivovar, Praha)

Got this bottled at the brewery in Prague: (see photo at upper left). Check out Novomestsky's website to see this place - it's a real Prague institution! Massively bitter with very little aroma or malt backbone. It's a bit like dishwater that has tons and tons of hops added. Extremely crisp and dry, and very herbal. Metallic, like licking a flagpole. Oh yeah, it had a nice, big frothy head at first, but it faded FAST! Thanks to my Prague connection for bringing this to NYC!

Draft at the brewery: hay stack orange with a slight haze, wet chewy hop aroma. . . Very natural aroma, remenisent of west coast hops, but with a new twist for me - a barnyard twist to hops. . . Flavour is piney, and though sticky somehow clean. Palate has avery nice texture and perfect carbonation. A bit of wet cardboard in a finish which actually adds /balances the bitter hops nicely. A wonderful beer in an even better atmosphere - hop vines everywhere, huge brass brew kettles and old half liter bottles. . .

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2003
A cloudy golden body with a huge, white head that left a thick layer of lacing down the glass. Sweet and dry malt aroma. Not too unlike the oyster crackers I just ate. Some floral hops in the nose as well. Nice, crisp bitterness. Dry and spicy. A bit fruity while maintaining the dryness. My first "real" Bohemian Pilsener. Many thanks to my intercontinental distributor and importer, iwantalambic.

larsniclas (5827) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2003
A dry texture beer with some bitterness. Quite smooth and pleasant to drink.

madsberg (10592) - Sřborg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Draught at the brewpub: Hazy orange coloured. Huge white head. Long lasting. Fruits and flowers in the nose. The flavour is hoppy and fruity. There is notes of elderflower I think. Very pleasant. Has a smooth mouthfeel that ends up with a hard bitter dry finish.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2003
Hazy body, virtually no head. Dry texture. Light bitter with an average duration. Herbal feel. Pleasant indeed!
